How to Prepare for an Appointment

  • Review our Policies and Locations pages to make sure you book the right appointment for you.

  • Visit If you have never booked an appointment before, please register to create an account.
  • Log into the appointment page. At the top, center of the page, you'll find a drop-down menu to change the locations offered. Please book an available appointment (a white block of time) and fill out the appointment questionnaire. If you woud like to make a 45-minute appointment, use the drop-down menu to change the appointment end time. Though WConline will now show your appointment as being an hour long, please know your consultant will need to end the appointment after 45 minutes. (Unable to find an appointment? Email us at We can't promise we can make something work, but knowing about such issues can help us improve staffing and scheduling in the future!)

  • Show up a few minutes early so that we can begin the appointment on time.

  • Bring your notes or draft and a copy of the assignment sheet. If your draft is on a laptop, that is fine.

  • If you have specific questions or concerns about your work, write them down before your appointment.

  • Remember, consultants don't proofread entire papers—but they are very good at helping you learn to produce stronger writing.
